Join Forces through Community Impact Funds

Why join forces?

Napa Valley is a place with deep roots and big dreams. A community where we honor tradition even as we branch out boldly in new directions.

We have extraordinary assets here, but significant challenges, as well.

Challenges around housing, education, immigration, inequality, water, land use and transportation, to name a few.  Challenges which uniquely confront rural counties like ours, where there is little organized philanthropic capital at the ready to address them.

In San Francisco, foundations distribute $678 per capita each year. In Napa County, that number is $75.

That’s why partnering with local donors is so critical to us, and to this community.  We seek to bring together the financial and intellectual capital of civic-minded people like you, and to focus dollars and energy on the most relevant opportunities and challenges in Napa Valley.

With a bird’s-eye view of the nonprofit sector and knowledge gleaned from more than 200 site visits each year to local charities, we know where there are gaps, opportunities, needs, new ideas and great leaders.

We make charitable investments based on what we know, and report back to you, and our other donors, on results.
